The entire board was on hand for the October 2017 Board meeting.  We are still trying to resolve the situation at the Discovery Center by trying to figure out what they will need from us to continue meeting there.  We have prepared an offer to at least get the ball rolling.  Other sites are also being considered and if you know of an available meeting place please let us know about it.  The club has 2 activities coming up.  Sara will lead the Kelby Worldwide Photowalk in Tuscawilla Park on October 7 and we will meet at Al's lake house for a night shoot on October 21.  details will be sent out.  Please read any club emails as the place of meeting could change abruptly.  We are still looking for members interested in serving on board next year and November will be the nominating month.

Greetings all.  We had a Board meeting before the September meeting.  The club has a situation at hand.  With very little advance notice we have just found out that the policy is changing at the Discovery Center and we will need to jump through some hoops if we want to continue meeting there.  Be on the lookout for any email blasts or Facebook updates.  We may need some of the members to step up and do some volunteer time at DC.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Speaking of steppin up.....Thank you and Welcome to Bill Down who has just joined the Board as the Membership/Communications Director.                                                                                  Mark your calendars for October 21, 2017.  That is very likely the date that we will be oing up to Al's lakehouse to do a night shoot (hopefully a star shoot if the sky is clear).  Plan to arrive well before dark so that we can have a short workshop on night focus and dark shooting.                                                                                                                                                                          JulieJ

Greetings.  During our BOD meeting on August 1, 2017, we discussed some very exciting upcoming events.  We are ready to start up both the Workshops and Field Trips now that the hottest part of the summer has passed.  Be on the lookout for possibly a Workshop in September and hopefully two different Field Trips in October.  We are still looking for some people to help fill slots as board members, so if you are interested, let us know.  Thanks all.  Julie Johnson

We had a board meeting prior to the July meeting on July 11, 2017 at the Discovery Center.

The main concern for the meeting was to get more club members involved in running the club.  

We got word that Lola needed to step down as Treasurer so Al agreed to take that position.


We discussed Field Trips and Workshop meetings.  As we approach Fall the activity in both areas should pick up.  If you have ideas and suggestions or want to volunteer for either please contact Kris or Renzo, or attend a Board Meeting and participate.


We have duties listed for each Board position so if you might be interested in accepting a position we can tell you what it will involve.


Members are always welcome at our Board meetings and we have moved them to right before the meetings to make that easier for anyone interested.


Thanks everyone.....JulieJ
